Take a look at some of the common misalignments of plank pose, and then practice this powerful upper body, core and leg strengthener.

A good instructional video to have on the site, but not sure why it was included in the "Beyond Fear" Journey Series as it only had us hold a plank for 30sec of the 9minute video

Very good instructions on proper plank posture. Injuries happen with misalignment.

I wanted more out of the fourth day of the beyond fear challenge. While it was useful, it was not a practice.

Very helpful.

I actually found this helpful. I know that I've let my back sink in before. I felt the difference when I did plank and listened Birgitte explain how to do plank correctly
